Project scope management includes the process leading to the initiation of the project and scope planning, definition, verification, and change control. Primary
outputs of the scope-management processes include a project charter, the project work breakdown structure (WBS), detailed statements of work (SOWs), functional and operational requirements (F&OR) or other definitions of the deliverable scope, the project assumptions, and a process for scope change control.
Project assumptions assist planners to develop a deterministic project plan. The plan and control processes defined by the PMBOK™ do not include a way to handle decision branches in a project plan. Assumptions define uncertainty sufficiently to permit defining a deterministic scope, cost, and schedule.
